I thought I was swinging the world by the tail -" before I met you"
"Since my phone still ain't ringing, I assume it still ain't you."
No amount of money could buy from me the memories that I have of them. No amount of money could pay me to go back and live through it again.
"Today has been my birthday,Tonight I should be glad,you weren't here to cheer me is why I hurt so bad,I didn't need your presents,just your kiss and sympathy,and hear you softly whisper Happy Birthday to me
*Then I walked home all by myself and lit the candle,and made a wish for you and love that used to be,I unwrapped a tiny package that I bought myself, and then I sang Happy Birthday to me..."I only know of a local band that sings this but it is the absolute prettiest song to me,does anyone else know who sings it???"
AND AND AND "You grace this frame the picture of perfection,while I'm the perfect picture of disgrace and upon your name I swear until I'm worthy,I forbid my eyes to look upon your face."
Hi Missy! don't know who wrote your song...but I have this one on one of Hank's albums. reminded me some of yours. NEXT SUNDAY DARLIN' IS MY BIRTH DAY, A DAY THAT SHOULD BE FREE FROM CARE, BEST WISHES AND CONGRATU LATIONS, BUT ONLY SORROW FILLS THE AIR. FIRST CHORUS WHILE FRIENDS ARE SINGING HAPPY BIRTH DAY, THERE'LL BE A SMILE UPON MY FACE, BUT WHEN THEY'RE GONE, THE SMILE WILL VANISH, A BROKEN HEART WILL TAKE IT'S PLACE. ANOTHER YEAR HAS COME AND GONE NOW, THE PLANS I MADE HAVE GONE A STRAY, THE DAY THAT SHOULD BE FILLED WITH LAUGHTER, WILL ONLY BE ANOTHER DAY. SECOND CHORUS THE LITTLE HOUSE WE PLANNED TOGETHER, IS EMPTY NOW WITHOUT YOU DEAR, BUT IN MY DREAMS YOU'RE THERE BESIDE ME, SO LET ME DREAM THAT YOU ARE HERE. Hank Williams

"He's the Charlie Daniels of the torque wrench" Queen Of My Double Wide Trailer (written by Dennis Linde) recorded by Sammy Kershaw Fred
I like that song too Fred!..always thought that was a cool line!.
Here's a few lines I like :
"Remember when a Ford or a Chevy would last ten years,like they should..when a woman could still cook,and still would!"
(Merle Haggard "Are The Good Times Really Over For Good")
"I don't believe virginity,is as common as it used to be--that gasoline's in short supply,the rising cost of gettin' by,but I believe in love".. ("I Believe In You" by Don Williams )
"Should be simple,should be easy--we're not talking brain surgery!--you do or you don't--love me!..("You Do Or You Don't"-Terri Clark )
"Compared to those, who have no hope,their lives so cold and dark...All my misery,is just a rain drop in the sea--so what's a broken heart?.. ("What's A Broken Heart" by Patty Loveless)
"He never hit the brakes,and he was shiftin' gears!..(Papa Loved Mama",Garth Brooks
"But will the timely crowd that has you laughing loud ,help you dry your tears--when the new wears off of your crystal chandeliers"..(Charlie Pride - "Crystal Chandeliers")
"The last thing she gave me was the bird!"..(George Jones)
"You've got to stand for something,or you'll fall for anything--you've got to be your own man--not a puppet on a string"....(Arron Tippin,"You've Got To Stand For Something")..
I also like his song "Where The Stars And Stripes,and The Eagles Fly"..especially the line that goes :
"I Pledge Allegiance To This Flag...And if that bothers you,well, that's too bad!"..
Those are but a very few of my favorite song lines...
"When It's Springtime In Alaska, It's 40 Below" I really don't have a favorite, however this is a gooder one. (gooder) on purpose.
"I've Been Hanging Out With Elvis, And All My Bills Are Paid" (Awesome) The list could go on and on. Have a wonderful day everyone, and good night to those who are just going to sleep, like me. "Don't Like My Peaches, Don't Shake My Tree, Stay Out Of My Orchard, Let My Peaches Be" (almost forgot that one). Goodnight Ragers, thanks for having me in the family.
I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand
Though rich or poor I may be Faith can see right through the circumstance Sees the forest in spite of the trees Your grace provides for me Ron Block
"Save Bean Blossom for Bluegrass" In 1951 Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass Music, purchased the Brown County Jamboree in the hill country of south central Indiana, a site where musical performances had taken place since 1940. In June of 1967 he started a bluegrass festival there which has continued uninterrupted since that time and which is now the oldest continuous bluegrass festival in the world. Many stars of the Grand Ole Opry who were contemporaries of Bill Monroe and just about all of the greats of bluegrass music have performed on the Bean Blossom stage. The place is rich in musical tradition and history. Many major bluegrass stars of today cut their teeth as youngsters on the jams sessions at Bean Blossom and performed there early in their careers. Some may in fact owe their careers to the influe nce of this place. In 1998, after the death of Bill Monroe, former Blue Grass Boy Dwight Dillman purchased the festival grounds and museum from James Monroe. Dillman stated his purpose was to bring the festival back to the national prominence it enjoyed under Monroe, and to do it as a memorial to his former boss. He set about immediately to improve the festival grounds while at the same time preserving the natural beauty of the hilly and wooded property. Shortly after Bill Monroe’s death, State highway 135 which runs through Bean Blossom was designated the “Bill Monroe Memorial Highway” by the Indiana General Assembly, and the annual June festival was designated a Local Legacy by the Library of Congress. Now, having accomplished his purpose, Dwight Dillman has put the Bean Blossom festival grounds and museum up for sale, with the understanding that he wants the bluegrass music and tradition to continue there. This is a call for friends and fans of Bill Monroe and his music to unite in the cause to save Bean Blossom for bluegrass. It is important that the Bean Blossom festival grounds and museum remain in the hands of people who have part of their souls in bluegrass music. Get the word out. Duplicate this page. Send it to your bluegrass friends. Post it on bluegrass web sites. It may help to generate ideas and action that will preserve the place called the Mecca of bluegrass music. For now unless otherwise stated, you may send any ideas, thoughts, suggestions, and contacts to me and I will make sure that the appropriate people receive them.

I guess this thread is "favorite lines from songs?" If not ... well, I been wrong before One of my all time favorite lines, and one that describes my personality fairly well goes like this: "... But never have I been a blue calm sea ... I have always been a storm." Stevie Nicks, 'Storms' from the Fleetwood Mac CD, Tusk
''If My Nose Was Runnin' Money Honey--
I'd Blow It All On You. But Don't Worry--Because It's -Not''!
William ...don't believe I've ever heard that one. Who sang it? Remember this one: Two hoops and a holler she's lower than a hound . If she drinks or smokes or tells a joke she's the lowest thing in town. '' Jean Shephard''
Louise, the only time I heard this funny little ditty was on the
Grand Ole Opry quite a few years ago! Mike Schneider did it! It was really funny! I have it on tape!
